Pieces, a longtime West Village gay bar, makes up for its terrible layout with excellent weeknight drag performances. The bar stretches along the wall and the stage is next to it, so there’s basically no room to move around - and you’ll feel a little uncomfortable, no matter where you’re standing. Weeknights are a little less crowded, so if you want to go out on a Tuesday night and have it feel like a Friday night, come here.
